Imprisoning the People Our society in its entirety has become a prison-like social system. This development was engineered by a small elite of the very wealthy to serve their own purposes.

An Asteroid of Oil The "but why" questions that we ask about how the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico could have happened lead beyond an assessment of the sins of the companies involved, and even beyond the obvious need for government regulation. They lead to the more fundamental question about whether the dominant economic paradigm on the planet risks our survival as a species.
